My Pink Stamper DT Call!! My 11th hour entry!

So, just in case you hadn't heard.....Robyn, aka My Pink Stamper, is having a Design Team Call for her next 6 month term. If you are completely new to Cricut, or at least the online Cricut world, then you may not know who Robyn is. You should REALLY check her out!! I first discovered here about 2 years ago when I ventured into the online Cricut community, and she really was inspiring to me in many ways. She has lots of great products that go along with the Cricut, and she is just such an All-American, girl-next-door type...you can't help but love her! :) You can check her out, HERE.
But, back on track....I have submitted a project for each of Robyn's previous DT calls, and have not been chosen... :( But, determination (and stubborness...hee hee!!) leads me to submit a project yet again, and HOPE, HOPE, HOPE that she discovers little ole me out of the crowd of almost 200 that have applied!! YIKES!!
So, since this IS the 11th hour...you only have until midnight CST TONIGHT to submit...I will get right to it!

These are Robyn's submission guidelines (let's see if I qualify)...

*You will need to have a blog that you regularly post on for at least 3 months. (check!)
*You cannot already be serving on a DT that has product that is a conflict of interest (most DTs are just fine as long as they do not sell product that is similar to My Pink Stamper Original Cricut Stamps idea) (check! I'm only on FCCB...no product there!!)
*Your project must be made just for this challenge (check! Done tonight and only for this!)
*Post a pic on your blog with a full recipe along with what the challenge is about (check!)
*This needs to be a new project that you make just for this challenge (check again!)
*Only one entry per person, please (check! no time to make a 2nd!! hee hee!!)
*You do not need to be a professional but you must have a love for the craft! :) (double check!!)

Challenge: Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......

Orange
Turquoise (ok...I DID use tourquoise....but it looks blue in the pic! :( )
Green
Brown
(other optional color of your choice) (check!! I've included all 4, and added an optional of YELLOW!)

Now that I have followed the guidelines to a 'T'...here's my card!! Hope you like it!



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: Birthday Bash (my current fave...lots of b-days around here right now!!), George and Basic Shapes, and Preserves
Cardstock: DCWV, Stampin' Up!, and Core'dinations
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
Pebbles Chalk
White and Black Gel Pen
Pop Dots

I cut the background card from Birthday Bash, using the card feature, at 5". The tourquoise background (that sort of looks blue in the pic...oops) is cut from George at 4" and embossed with Swiss Dots. Since it is Core'dinations paper, the dots popped thru with the white core, so I dusted it with some Pebbles chalk to get the single color look back. I then cut the tag from Preserves using my Gypsy, so that I could get the correct length and width for my sentiment. I cut my Donkey Pinata from Birthday Bash at 3.25" and the CELEBRATE phrase, from the same cartridge, at 3". I cut the phrase 3 times in 3 different colors so I could create a shadow effect. I then inked all edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, and assemble!! Add a few Gel Pen doodles and VOILA! A wonderful birthday card!! :)

Thank you guys, for taking a peek at my card tonight, and if you have a minute to throw together a quick card for her DT call...go for it!! I have been meaning to do this all week (since she announced it)...but hadn't gotten my buns in gear! I'm so glad I did though....and I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! Good luck to all the other applicants!! :)
